About 5 hours of cumulated flight duration from Zürich, straight north. That’s what it takes to reach Longyearbyen.
22:00. Taking off almost at night from Oslo Gardermoen, the flight begins to chase the sun. That one that will then not disappear for weeks.

Oslo Gardermoen

Slowly appears the shadow of the earth on its own atmosphere. On the other side, the first sunlight illuminates the clouds.
And inbetween, the moon rises. What a view…

Flying towards the midnight sun.

02:00 AM, the plane lands at Longyearbyen airport.

Next stop: Nybyen.
